A 200-room hotel has an annual fixed cost of $1,050,000 and a profit goal of 12% return on investment of $5,000,000. With an average room rate of $78 and average variable cost of $34 per room. Calculate the followings and show your work and answer.
Number of room sales (annual)
Occupancy rate
Revenue required
Desired profit = Investment x rate of return
= $5000000*12%
= $600,000
Contribution margin per room = Room rate - variable costs
= $78 - $34 = $44 per room
Number of room sales (annual) = (Fixed costs + Desired profit) / Contribution margin per room
=(1050000+600000)/44 = 37,500 rooms
Total no. of room day(annual) = 200 rooms x 365 days = 73,000
Occupancy rate = Number of room sales / Total no. of room
= 37500/73000 = 51.37%
Revenue required = Number of room sales (annual) x Room rate
= 37,500 rooms x $78 per room
= $2925000
